  226.135.  Commission authorized to contract with other jurisdictions — multistate permits for certain vehicles — fees — over-dimension permit fund established. — 1.  The state highways and transportation commission shall have the authority to enter into one or more agreements with appropriate authorities within other states for the issuance of a multistate or regional permit for vehicles and equipment exceeding the legal limitations on width, length, height and weight, or which are unable to maintain minimum speed limits.  Such permits shall be issued by the chief engineer of the state department of transportation, or his counterpart in another state subject to such an agreement with the commission, for good cause shown and when the public safety or public interest so justifies.  Such permits shall be issued only for a single trip or for a definite period, not exceeding the maximum period set forth in the multistate agreement with the commission, and shall designate the highways and bridges within Missouri which may be used under the authority of such permit.

  2.  The chief engineer of the department of transportation shall have authority to collect permit fees for Missouri and for the other state or states subject to an agreement authorized in subsection 1 of this section, in the same manner as he now collects fees for permits for vehicles and equipment exceeding width, length, height and weight limits, or which are unable to maintain minimum speed limits, for travel exclusively within Missouri.  Within each agreement authorized in this section, the highways and transportation commission may authorize officials in another state or states subject to that agreement to collect fees for and on behalf of the commission as well as other states, in compensation for the issuance of such permits for those vehicles and equipment to travel on Missouri highways and bridges.  Permit fees for multistate travel for such vehicles and equipment shall be established and reestablished within each agreement authorized in this section, and any amendments thereto.

  3.  The permit fees collected by the chief engineer on behalf of other jurisdictions under agreements made under subsection 1 of this section are hereby designated as "nonstate funds" within the meaning of Section 15, Article IV, Constitution of Missouri, and shall be immediately transmitted to the department of revenue of the state for deposit to the credit of a special fund which is hereby created and designated as the "Over-Dimension Permit Fund".  The chief engineer shall not less frequently than once each month direct the payment of, and the director of revenue shall pay, the fees so collected to the appropriate other jurisdictions.  All income derived from the investment of the over-dimension permit fund by the director of revenue shall be credited to the state road fund.  The portion of those permit fees collected by another state or states pursuant to the terms of the agreement authorized by this section and owing to the Missouri highways and transportation commission shall be deposited into the state road fund, as provided in the agreement.
